The Higgs Boson – is it still there and does it matter?
Dr Rob Appleby of the University of Manchester returns to our SciBar to update us on the Higgs boson – the facts and the implications. Have we really found it? Is there more than one Higgs boson? What would that cause?
Rob is a lecturer in the High Energy Particle Physics Group and the Accelerator Physics Group of the University of Manchester, and an academic staff member at the Cockcroft Institute of Accelerator Science. He is also an associate of the Beams division at CERN (APB) and a member of the LHCb experiment. His primary research is into the physics of particle accelerators, including beam dynamics, lattice design and interactions of particles with matter, and physics at the LHC. Also, as we all know from previous Knutsford SciBars, he is an excellent speaker.
